New Sitkopolis

AnimalThree Toed Sloth

The Commonwealth of New Sitkopolis is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Vlamadir Putine with an even hand, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, humorless, devout population of 1.181 billion New Sitkopolisians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of NewPiernotopia. The average income tax rate is 88.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient New Sitkopolisian economy, worth 150 trillion Piernobucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 127,639 Piernobucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, it's not only teenagers who mess around with fake IDs, there's more than one way to skin a diplomat, and international negotiations always lead to a lot of missile-laneous expenses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Sitkopolis's national animal is the Three Toed Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Sitkosism.

New Sitkopolis is ranked 45,939th in the world and 1,944th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,949.85 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
